UFO photographed in sky in Corpus Christi, Texas on May 10, 2013.

I photographed this object floating stationary in the sky on my way to a restaurant with my wife.

It was on Friday, May 10, 2013, at approximately 4:50 p.m. when I saw the object in the sky. My wife was driving and I was in the passenger’s seat. I first told her, “Hey, there’s a UFO in the sky!” and she said “Where?” and I said, “over there, on my side.” She tried to look but couldn’t see because of her angle and because she was driving.

I quickly had the presence of mind to take out my camera phone and snap a picture of the object although I did not have time to zoom in; I was more concerned about capturing the object.

The photo was taken while the car was in motion so I was concerned that I hadn’t caught it on camera but when we arrived at the restaurant drive-through lane, I checked to see if I had caught it. At first, I could not see anything but once I zoomed in and enlarged the photo in the screen, I saw it! I showed it to my wife who was skeptical, stating, “It’s probably a bird”. But, upon further inspection, I also caught a seagull flying through the air (very common here in Corpus Christi, TX).

And when I compared the two it was larger than the seagull and much darker. What caught my attention initially was that it appeared to me to be a round piece of metal floating in the sky. It was not traveling, had no wings to flap or fly with, so I knew it was not a bird or a plane, again, it was stationary, not moving at all, not even bobbing and weaving in place just completely stationary which made me think it couldn’t be a jet either because you would definitely notice distance in t! he sky covered if a bird, plane, or jet. This object had no noticeable lights as this was in the afternoon with slight overcast skies.

I was not going to report it initially, but then decided to, after a woman in CA caught a similar looking UFO in a photograph within a week or two of mine. I do not have photo enhancing technology on my computer but I can zoom in and can tell it is not a seagull when I compare it with the seagull in the pic. This had no wings, no motion, and no movement that I was able to witness. I was able to keep an eye on it for about ten seconds before snapping the picture, this whole time it was absolutely still. If you can enhance the photo object please let me know, I would appreciate it very much. Thank you.
